The relevance of the event. Over the past few years, the nature of money laundering has changed significantly. Digital assets and electronic money have opened up more opportunities for the transfer of illegal funds. The conditions of modern banking also imply the rejection of the anonymity of transactions and the provision of transparency of transactions. Thus, the legislation aimed at combating money laundering has also changed. AML/KYC regulations require banks and other financial institutions to understand who their customers are and what transactions they conduct, so today AML & KYC are simply necessary for a safer work in financial markets when carrying out various financial transactions.

The indisputable advantage of the Conference is its practical orientation, an excellent opportunity to listen to high-level speakers and exchange experiences with representatives of the professional community!
